Andrew McMahon Parties Under a Parachute at Robert Mondavi Winery

Andrew McMahon In the Wilderness opened the Robert Mondavi Summer Concert Series. Check out the photos.

Hot off the summer festival circuit, Andrew McMahon and his project Andrew McMahon In the Wilderness returned to Robert Mondavi Winery to commence the winery’s 2017 Summer Concert Series on July 1.

Since its premiere in 1969, the Robert Mondavi Summer Concert Series has hosted hundreds of jazz legends and acclaimed artists, including Ella Fitzgerald, Roberta Flack, Dizzy Gillespie, Ray Charles, Dave Brubeck, Sarah Vaughn, Aimee Mann, Blondie, Chris Isaak, The Wallflowers and k.d. lang.

This year, the winery has teamed up with Napa’s BottleRock festival to bring five award-winning musical acts to the winery lawn. With summer in full swing, it is refreshing to be able to catch your favorite acts in a more relaxed environment than the festival setting – not worrying about spilling your wine as you run from stage to stage!

Allen Stone, an energetic musician from Chewelah, Washington, kicked off the opening night while concert goers were dancing or enjoying the show on blankets, sipping wine from the Napa Valley winery. If you looked closely, you could spot members of the Wilderness crew joining the dancers.

When McMahon and his band took the stage, all blankets and chair were put aside and the crowd partied under a parachute, tossing beach balls and rubbing elbows with McMahon. The party lasted well into the night and was a great start to the 48th annual concert series.
